sons, mark, bob, john and david, and the entire lugar family, most of which is with us here in the galleries today. their strength and sacrifices have been indispensable to my public service. i'm also very much indebted to a great number of talented and loyal friends who have served with me in the senate, including, by my count, more than 300 senators, hundreds of personal and committee staff members, and more than a thousand student interns. in my experience, it is difficult to conceive of a better platform from which to devote one's self to public service and the search for solutions to national and international problems. at its best, the senate is one of the founders' most important creations. a great deal has been written recently about political discord in the united states, with some commentators judging that partisanship is at an all-time high. having seen quite a few periods in the congress when political struggles were portrayed in this way, i hesitate to describe our current state as the most partisan ever, but i do believe that as an institution, we have not live

becomes clear is that this weapon was guise. and it's the same weapon, a variety of that weapon is used by military forces. it was the same weapon, a variety of which was used by the d.c. sniper and the image, i think, of this person armed for combat with this long rifle, with 5 and 7-year-olds on the other side of it, i think, is going to heighten the intensity of the political debate of guns in the wake of this. and there's already article. a "new york times" article today about michael cooper about what will happen with the gun debate. we've had sorts of stories written after abby gifford was shot. it seems like something has changed but maybe it's because of the moral obscenity that it's so past anything conceivable. and so, i wanted to trace for a moment, as we're thinking about where the white house is going to be on the. everyone is talking about the president, where the president has been in the past. what the trajectory of his stance on this issue is. he's moved in one direction and quite directionally without much wavering back and forth. as a young politician he was in the ar

requires the government obtain a warrant any time it seeks to conduct direct surveillance on a u.s. person. indirect surveillance of u.s. persons by means of backdoor searches should be no different. no one disputes that the government may have a legitimate need to search its fisa data base for information about a u.s. person, but there is no legitimate reason why the government ought not first obtain a warrant by articulating and justifying the need for its intrusion on the privacy of u.s. persons. our constitutional values demand nothing less. unfortunately, we won't be voting on such an amendment later today. so our reauthorization of fisa will include a grant of authority for the government to perform backdoor searches, seeking information on individual american citizens without a warrant. i believe such searches are inconsistent with fundamental fourth amendment principles. for this reason, i cannot support the fisa reauthorization, and i urge my colleagues to oppose the bill in its current form. i'd like next to speak about a few amendments that i think would make some improvements t
